I've got to admit that's very cute.

Good stuff L8asusul.

Surprised to hear there were two in the same color combo around the same time and in the same area. Great looking MH's and sorry to hear that you weren't able to hold onto yours. Hopefully the new owner will treat it well.

How was the interior space? I've never seen inside except for the front facing photo you had in your album. Would there be room enough for kitchen, restroom and sleeping qrtr?

Good to hear from you.

Thanks George. Right now I'd prefer something unfinished/unrestored that I can complete to my liking, but looks like a nice MH!

Mine was gutted when I got it. It had had a rear shower/sink combo and the interior space was nice. With the low roof you would have to install a drop down bed if you needed more than the sleeping accommodations provided by a seating nook conversion. I have pictures of the interior of the HRRV that I will try and post up. That was top notch. The unique feature of the Starcraft is that it was and still is the only one piece body motorhome. All others are two or more sections glassed/glued together. It was fitted over an all steel tube skeleton with wood glassed into the body for mounting points.

I REALLY like the location of the window in the shower/bathroom !!!!

Thanks George, will keep an eye on that facebook account. That one in Phoenix looks like the post was taken down already.

@70starcraft congrats on the purchase, that's awesome! Are you located in SoCal? How's the condition? I'd love to see some interior photos! Mind me asking what you picked it up for?

Nice looking rig!

PS pretty incredible how connected the Internet makes things these days...

The inside of mine is pretty gutted but the previous owner put in new wood on the floors and walls. I have no idea if he did it correctly or not but it looks like there is new insulation behind the wood.

I know a guy in Utah that has one he might be willing to sell. He recently sent me some pics. the inside is pretty much untouched. I think he said he paid $6k for his. He told me the guy he bought it from logged every mile he drove and every time he put gas in it. He had receipts for everything, even a $3 belt adjustment. He was meticulous with his records.
